TRAGIC LAST VOYAGE OF GENERAL SLOCUM


This article has been published before....but I'm always receiving request for it to be sent out to readers and so I decided to post it so that all could read about such a tragic event.

This "Tragic Event" took place in New York....and it took place on a ferry...so named General Slocum.  A Lutheran Church group....about 1375 men, women and children going to and annual picnic....of New York's "Little Germany"....it was the big event of the year for all.

But, unfortunately it didn't turn out that way.....in fact it was the most tragic event of the century....just try and wrap your mind around this......955 died....and well over 175 injured and it happen right before the eyes of others...more or less unable to help.

So....here is the events of what was suppose to be a super nice event.....but turned out to be the loss of 100's of lives....men, women and children.  Just click on the title to read.
